5 Ways to be Wise and Kind

Wisdom of the years.

What is it that people of the older generations have that we're missing? The wisdom of experience. There's a saying that the master has failed more times than the student has ever tried. A lot of the wisdom passed down to us from the generations before us is based on living and learning lessons we've never experienced. This week, we can choose intentional kindness based on some wise old sayings. To do it, each Simple Help is based on one of those wise old sayings! Let's help people this week by borrowing some wisdom from the past.

Don't Forget:

- You can reference Simple Help using "@gohelpsomebody" on FB, Twitter or Instagram.

- Add the hashtag "#simplehelp" to any related post on social media. Use it, and the whole tribe of helpers can easily see ways we are making a difference!
